  1. I’ve just found your blog and it looks just the thing I need. I’ve always used PSP cos I found it easier to use than Photoshop. However – I seem to have been stuck at the same ‘intermediate’ stage and find it easier to use instant clicks for everything rather than the long, long processes of ‘Layers’. My age has a lot to do with it I think – physical and mental!! So- I’m looking forward to viewing your tutorials in the hope of being rescued …. many thanks, Eileen

  2. Hey Eileen.
    Thanks for your kind words. I am glad I can help you get to know the program a bit better. I do try to post video’s every week on this blog. If there is anything in particular that you would like to know about just let me know. Thanks again!

    1. Chris I am thinking about buying PSP7 and I am having a hard time finding the tools I need for instance the text cutter it comes up and then goes away and I don’t know why if you could help I would be grateful corel is just like a knot on a log no use for nothing.

  3. Chris, first of all, I love your blog and photographs. I don’t find many tutorials on Corel, so your information is great. I’m a novice photographer and I have a specific question about how to get a certain look ‘format’ on a photo with Corel. I keep seeing photographers achieving a very specific look in their photos- bright but still vintage look. It’s hard to explain without showing examples. I’m wondering if it can be achieved in Corel. A specific photographer sells her formats that I love, but they are only available for photoshop. I have photoshop but prefer Corel. Please let me know if you’d be willing to help 🙂 I’m editing my best friends maternity photos and desperately want to achieve the same look- but no matter how much I try, I can’t. I will try to email you 🙂 thanks again for all this great info!

    1. Hey Courtney. Thank you for your kind words. You can achieve that look and it is somewhat easy depending on what the photographs are for. Now corel does have some pre-programmed effects that can help create that effect. I know in Corel X6 they do I am not sure about X5. You can go to the INSTANT EFFECTS and see the templates for the RETRO look. You can also go to effect then click on time machine and see if any of those templates work. The best way is to use the RETRO LAB in Corel X6. The easiest way to get there is by clicking on your learning center tab, then click on effects and select RETRO LAB. This will provide you with some easy editing options and give you a little more creative control. I hope that helps. Let me know if you have any more questions! Thanks. 🙂

  4. Chris I watched your video on how to make a watermark. It was very helpful but I am stuck. I want my photography name and the maybe a clip are or something to go with it. Please say you can help me with this!! Thank you!

  5. Oh sorry Chris. Yes I mean like a graphic or design. I understand how to get text transparent but I have a small camera pic with my photography name. I have been using picmonkey.com to get in on my pics but I would like to know how to do it with my paintshop.

  6. Hi Chris, thanks for your videos and tips, I am learning a lot from them. I do have a question though, is there any advantages of using after shot pro over paint shop pro? I have just started using the raw format.

  7. Hi Chris, Have you done a double exposure tutorial? If not, is one in the works? I’ve looked at a few PS tutorials and just get confused. You seem to make editing look easy. If you haven’t done one please consider it.

    1. Hey Marshall. Thanks for your comment. I have not yet done a video covering that but I will add it to the list. I do receive allot of requests and will do my best to make a video on this subject. Thanks!

  8. Hi Chris,

    I just saw one of your tutorial on you tube regrading selections. I’m new to paint shop pro and it was a great video. I look forward to reviewing and learning from your other videos.
